One of the biggest appeals of vinyl fencing is the fact that its low maintenance. It’s weather resistant and extremely durable. There are fewer risks when it comes to potential structural damage due to growth, the elements, and other environmental changes. However, that doesn’t mean you never have to do anything to it. There are just a few things you need to do to your vinyl fence to help it last.
One of the best things you can do to keep up the appearance of your fencing is cleaning it regularly. To do so, you simply need some diluted household cleaner and a sponge. Go over the entire fence, cleaning any grime and dirt. Then, just rinse it away with a hose. Regular cleanings extend the life of the fencing by keeping it free of stains and packed on grime.
If damage does happen, be sure to find quality parts and repair the fence as soon as possible. For example, use fencing glue to replace post caps, and contact your local fencing company for parts or repair. Companies that deal specifically in fencing will have more knowledge and a better selection of parts than a big box store.
A very simple yet effective maintenance task? Staying aware of your fence’s condition. After the winter or significant weather, walk the entire perimeter of your fence to check for stability and to see if anything needs attention. Making this a yearly task will help you stay on top of any issues that need to be fixed.
